TOM THOMPSON​

Store Owner & Operations Manager

Tom was born into the furniture business, it’s in the blood. His father and mother owned and operated a small store in Western Kansas, and Tom took the mantle when it was his time. However, he didn’t stop there – his success in the industry connected him with some of the biggest players in the game from store owners in key cities to product manufacturers across the country. The epitome of a gentle giant, Tom welcomes customers with open arms and a sense of generosity that is all but lost in our day and age.

Our Story

The Birth Of Refined Consign & Design

The Birth Of Refined Consign & Design

After a morning spent finding new furniture, Brenda and a long-time design client were in her living room discussing where each new item would like to live. With a heavy heart, her client caressed the nearby couch and asked, “Brenda, what are we going to do with all this beautiful furniture? My kids don’t want it.”

Right then, Brenda had a flash of inspiration, like lightning in the cloudy sky. If only there was a place for these gently used gems to be displayed, they would certainly be discovered by someone with a deep appreciation for the item’s quality and character.

Instead of being sent to dump, they would be given a second life. That evening, she drove home and enthusiastically shared her insight to her husband, Tom, who’d watched as the consignment concept gained traction over the past 30 years in the furniture industry.

As Brenda explained her idea, Tom realized that an upscale consignment store was an excellent way to ensure his customers continued to have access to designer quality furniture despite the industry’s steadily rising prices. Thus, the Thompson’s set out to build Colorado’s premier consignment store, offering a collection of superbly curated new and used items. The entire Refined Consign and Design Family is eager to bring new life to environments throughout Denver, Colorado, and beyond.
